OCR02221 - Sonic the Hedgehog 'Bubble Junkie'

Recommended Posts

LOVE this track. On an album full of winners, this one sticks with me even more than the rest. The build to the climax at 3:12 and the stuttered modified beat that drives this track home in the final few seconds is worth a few listens all by itself!

The talkbox lead is brilliant, clearly echoing the distinctive "oh-up" sound Sonic makes upon inhaling a bubble. This is one of my faves from Sonic 1, and this mix totally does it justice.

Let me get this out of the way real quick: I hated Labyrinth Zone. It was the zone that almost always got me way back when. And it was almost as if it was taunting me by playing that great music while killing or drowning me. That aside, this is my personal favorite ReMix off the album. The sound effects were used to perfection and the Daft Punk-ish talkbox lead was utterly sweet. The melody is as cool as I remembered it and the Special Stage theme was tied in pretty well. Enjoyed this one very much.

I don't read djp's writeup until listening to the track, and so the lead coming in caught me completely offguard. Hilarious and perfect. Loved it!

After carefully listening to all of the tracks on the album, I have finally claimed this one to be my favorite of the bunch. There are many other songs that I love on this album, but there's something special about this one. Great work.

while I personally disagree with your choice of favorite song, it makes me smile to see you say that's there's something special about it

I love this track, it's clearly one of my favorites from SoS. For me there're probably 3 details that make this mix that awesome: crunchy glitchy percussion, tastefully used in-game FX and funky talkbox lead. Awesome upbeat bouncy goodness!
